The launch of Disney+ has re-opened an old wound in the Star Wars fandom. The good news? Disney's streaming service has every Star Wars movie available to stream, in 4K no less. The bad news? The version of A New Hope that is featured on the service features yet another, truly perplexing change to the fame scene between Han Solo and Greedo. And that change was made by none other than George Lucas. In the original version of A New Hope, which was released simply as Star Wars in 1977, only to be given the subtitle later, Han Solo famously shoots the bounty hunter Greedo dead in the Mos Eisley cantina, after he was sent to collect on the bounty put on his head by Jabba the Hutt. In the 1997 special editions, George Lucas controversially made it so Greedo also shoots at Han, yet misses from just several feet away. This, for many, ruined a character-defining moment and prompted the common saying "Han shot first" amongst the fanbase. Well, as it turns out, George Lucas, about seven years ago … [Read more...] about Star Wars Han Vs. Greedo Scene Changed Yet Again for Disney+

Florida Georgia Line have announced the title and release date for their fourth studio album. Can’t Say I Ain’t Country, the follow-up to 2016’s Dig Your Roots, arrives February 15th via their longtime label home Big Machine Label Group. Since capping off the Dig Your Roots album cycle, which included three Number One singles, the duo of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley have released a trio of new songs: the bouncy chart-topper “Simple,” current single “Talk You Out of It” and the rootsy “Colorado.” Presumably, the new material will appear on Can’t Say I Ain’t Country, but a track list has yet to be announced. “You can say a lot of things. You can call somebody a lot of different names and have a lot of different opinions, but at the end of the day, when it comes to me and Tyler, you can’t say we ain’t country,” Kelley said in a statement of the album’s title — perhaps a bit of subtle … [Read more...] about Florida Georgia Line Ready New Album ‘Can’t Say I Ain’t Country’
Even before Florida Georgia Line took the stage on Wednesday night for the second show of their new Las Vegas residency — Florida Georgia Line Live From Las Vegas — it was clear this wasn’t going to be a typical country concert. There were blinding lasers beaming through the crowd, music loud enough to make rock stars blush and even a 12-year-old opening act. But somehow, the whole spectacle worked perfectly. In fact, for the next 75 minutes, the show was less concert and more party, with FGL’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley playing fist-bumping hosts. The duo, in the midst of their five-show run at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, began the evening with fan favorite “Anything Goes” before unleashing a barrage of top hits and sing-alongs. While as a group FGL is still relatively new, having formed less than 10 years ago, the setlist felt like a walk down memory lane, particularly when they played tracks like “Stay,” “Round … [Read more...] about Florida Georgia Line Party Hard at Las Vegas Residency
While Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the true definition of a box office phenomenon, one that fans and critics both loved, there is a huge problem people have had with the movie since it arrived in theaters this past December. And that's the fact that it is way too similar to Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. Both stories certainly run parallel to each other, and both hit some of the same beats to the minute. Now, a new study shows that the two movies are much more similar than you may have originally thought! McGill University computer science professor Derek Ruths has taken a deep dive into both movies exclusively for Wired magazine, and you can read their full report here. The study points out the most obvious similarities right off the bat. Both sci-fi adventures follow a desert-dwelling, force sensitive individual who is forced to journey away from their home planet for a life-altering mission. They team up with smugglers, join the Rebellion/Resistance, and help destroy a … [Read more...] about Are Star Wars: The Force Awakens & A New Hope Basically The Same Movie?
